WATCH: Security footage captures fatal Israeli air strike


(WARNING: The above video may offend some viewers)

As tensions ramp up in the Middle East, a video of a shockingly precise Israeli air strike in the Gaza Strip was released on YouTube Saturday.

The video clip, allegedly captured from CCTV footage in the Gaza Strip, appears to show a car driving down a coastal road, passing as a pedestrian walking in the same direction.

Suddenly the car explodes, struck by a precision air strike.

The pedestrian flinches, but appears relatively unfazed. After pausing for a moment, they turn around and walk in the other direction.

According The Times of Israel, the video shows an Israeli Air Force strike against two operatives belonging to the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), described as “a coalition of armed groups in Gaza.”

The Times quoted an Israeli spokesperson confirming that Israel carried out the killing of Osama Has​sumi, 29, and Mohammad Fatzih, 24, on Friday.

Israel Defense Force spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said the individuals were in “a cell responsible for repeated rocket fire on Israel’s southern cities over the past several weeks and were planning terror attacks on Israeli civilians.”
